Five explorers in Antarctica in a boat.

After sell-out seasons at WA Maritime Museum and National Museum of Australia, The Antarctica Experience is coming to Geraldton!

This is your chance to experience a day in the life of Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

You will see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability and conserving wildlife.

Along the way you will:

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit
  • Visit the resident penguin colony
  • Meet the researchers at Davis Station
  • See the spectacular Southern Lights

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K footage, this is Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before.
